Michael Ruetz - Sea Change. Facing The Sixties
German photographer Michael Ruetz revisits the images he captured in the pivotal decade between 1964 and 1974, asking himself: “Did I actually see things as I photographed them then?” Many of these pictures are part of the collective visual consciousness of the period, but are the most well-known images in fact the essential ones? In this book Ruetz depicts people as he experienced them at the time, preserving their individual character but with a new eye towards the choice of details and enlarged sections of photographs. In this way he leaves it up to the viewer to interpret what is expressed on the faces of the many onlookers, followers, thinkers, strikers, and fighters.
